Two Bits Of Advice For 2017 This month I have decided to address two different issues. The first is for my female runners and is something we should always be aware of despite our apparent fitness. The second is a reminder to treat yourself regularly. None of us are immune to having a heart attack and women may experience symptoms not generally associated with a heart attack. Being cognizant of these symptoms could save your life. Although women may experience extreme chest pain during a heart attack, not all women who have a heart attack get this intense feeling. Some experience only mild chest pain or an uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, or fullness in their chest. Others might not have chest pain at all. In fact, many women may experience the following signals instead of (or in addition to) chest pain: 1. Shortness of breath 2. Breaking out in a cold sweat 3. Nausea, indigestion, or vomiting 4. Dizziness or feeling faint 5. Headache 6. Pain or discomfort in the upper body - such as in one or both arms, the neck, stomach, back, or jaw Women are slightly more likely than men to experience these atypical symptoms during a heart attack, especially nausea or vomiting, back or jaw pain, and shortness of breath. African-American women tend to report having these heart attack signs more often than both Caucasian women and men. If you or someone you love experiences these symptoms, call 911 immediately. Do not hesitate. EMT's are trained to begin lifesaving treatment immediately. Receiving treatment for a heart attack within one hour can greatly increase the chances for survival and a full recovery. Unfortunately running does not totally protect us from heart problems, so always be aware and do not shrug off unusual symptoms. On a lighter note, hundreds of years ago, Europeans thought chocolate could strengthen the heart. It appears that there is some truth to this belief. Chocolate does more than taste good. It also contains nutrients called flavonoids that have many heart healthy benefits. Flavonoids also are found in apples, onions, tea, and red wine. Chocolate may improve heart health in a variety of ways. Flavonoids found in cocoa may lessen the blood's ability to form dangerous clots, which can lead to

heart attacks. In addition, chocolate contains plenty of minerals, such as copper, potassium, and magnesium. These three minerals are important for a healthy heart and blood vessels. One of the fats in chocolate is oleic acid, which is found in olive oil. This monounsaturated fat has been shown to boost heart health. If this sweet news tempts you to have some chocolate, here are a few suggestions on how to enjoy this treat, bite for bite: • Enjoy chocolate on an empty stomach. That's when it tastes best. I tried this and it is amazing. • Do not keep chocolate in the refrigerator or freezer. It's tastiest when it's at a temperature of between 66 and 77 degrees Fahrenheit. • But you must remember, the key is moderation. Despite its cardiovascular benefits, chocolate is loaded with calories. Try satisfying yourself with a few pieces or a mini chocolate bar. • Choose dark chocolate, which typically contains more flavonoids and minerals than milk chocolate. The main point of this entire article is to promote your awareness. It is additionally of great importance to reward yourself with a few nice chocolate treats. Life is too short to not do what is best for you. Here's to a new year filled with health and happiness and lots of good runs!!

This Running Life Sublime to Ridiculous: Setting Records Part of Fun For the last two summers, troupes of fashionable Raleigh, NC runners have jogged, high-stepped, shuffled and done whatever it took under blazing summer skies to break the Guinness World Record for the most runners to complete a 1K run wearing flip flops. National Flip Flop Day, held on the third Friday in June, provides the perfect backdrop for the popular event, which has broken the world record two years in a row, in 2015 and 2016. It is sponsored by the popular Nog Run Club in Raleigh. Sadly, last year, a feisty group in Spain nudged the Nog Club's 809-runner world record off of the leader board, when a gang of 845 swimsuit-clad runners took to the beach in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria on September 25. Sore toes notwithstanding, attempting a short run in a pair of thongs is heaps of fun and makes you feel like a kid again. Setting or even breaking a Guinness World Record is a blast. The next North Carolina attempt to reclaim the flip flop record will be on June 10 in Cary. Virginia Beach, VA got in on the action last Christmas, hosting the Surf n Santa 5miler, which broke the Guinness World Record for the largest Santa Run in the world when 5,025 runners dressed in Santa suits turned out for the event. The sports world is full of records just

waiting to be broken, and during the last Olympic year, I sat, all agog in front of my TV, absorbing thrill after thrill watching new athletes shatter old records. But great athletic record-setting isn't limited to Olympians, so to keep my excitement going all year long, I spent some time doing research to ferret out Olympic running records and other amazing feats by everyday athletes of all ages. Here are some records set in 2016. April: At the golden age of 100, Ida Keeling of New York City thrilled race fans by becoming the oldest runner ever to compete in the 100-meter dash at the Penn Relays on April 30. She set a world record by finishing in 1:17.53, adding this accomplishment to the 60-meter record at 29.86 she holds among runners in the 95-

August: During the Summer Olympic Games in Rio, Wayde van NieKerk of South Africa ran 400 meters in 43.03 seconds to claim both the world and Olympic records. Almaz Ayana of Kenya broke the women's 10K world and Olympic records, finishing in 29:17.45. While Gwen Jorgensen's Olympic triathlon win in 1:56.16 wasn't a recordbreaker, it did mark the first time an American has won the women's triathlon since it became a Summer Olympic sport in 2000. September: Karl “Speedgoat” Meltzer celebrated his new Appalachian Trail record, (beating Scott Jurek's previous record), when he hiked the entire trail, starting in Maine on August 3 and finishing in Georgia on September 18, after covering 2,190 miles over 14 states in 45 days, 22 hours and 38 minutes. Pete Kostelnick, 29, broke the record for a 3,067-mile trans-continental run, starting at the San Francisco City Hall on September 12 and finishing at the New York City Hall 42 days, 6 hours and 30 minutes later on October 24. October: On October 21-22, 77-year-old Doyle Carpenter of Thorn Hill, Tenn., ran 149 miles in 48 hours to win the Endless Mile Ultramarathon in Alabaster, Ala., becoming the oldest man to win a 48-hour race. Ed Whitlock, 85, of Milton, Ontario, set a new world record for marathon running in the 85-89 age group when he finished the Toronto Waterfront Marathon in 3:56.32 on October 17. Earlier in the year, Whitlock set a half-marathon world record when he crossed the Waterloo, Ontario Half Marathon in 1:50.47. In 2003, at the age of 72, he was the first person over 70 to run a marathon in less than three hours, finishing the Toronto Waterfront Marathon in 2:59.10.

Last summer, 809 runners showed up in Cary, N.C. to break the record for the world's largest flip flop run. The run was sponsored by the Nog Run Club of Raleigh. A team in Spain challenged the record and beat it by less than 40 runners. The Nog Club is roaring back in 2017 with another flip flop run scheduled June 10. Photo by Nog Run Club

November: In New York City last November, Ghirmay Ghebreslassie, 20, of Eritrea, became the youngest-ever winner of the New York City Marathon, and his 2:07:51 finish was the fifth fastest winning time in the 46-year history of the marathon.

Running Psychology It's the Process When you go to a race, the event becomes a means by which to produce some type of product, i.e. performance, from a great deal of process, i.e. training. Since racing may represent some product, many runners experience internal pressure to make the product come out really well, i.e. run fast, set a PR etc. However, selfawareness of this pressure to perform and produce a really good product may actually serve to reduce the quality of the product. By focusing too much on the outcome, or product, you can actually view it as a concentration issue. To produce any product there must be a process to get you to the product and if you forget the process and think too much about the product, the process will break down and a poor product may be produced. It's like baking a cake; get in a hurry to get the cake done and don't follow the recipe and you risk coming out with a fallen, dry, bad tasting cake. Too much focus on just getting to the outcome without sticking to the process can lead to problems in many aspects of life. And so it is with running. In many cases runners will have problems staying with the process when things don't go exactly as they have planned, either in training or in racing. If training isn't going well or you feel bad in a race you should probably remind yourself to be patient and relax. In other words, just stay with the process. But instead, you may tell yourself that things are not going well, what you're doing is not working and you're going to perform poorly. In the course of training such thinking can lead to abandoning training programs, inappropriate changes in training and even overtraining or training cessation. By exhibiting self-doubt in the process you may actually be showing signs of low levels of confidence. When confidence is low and thoughts turn towards doubt and feelings of failure a spiral begins to form in which frustration and distractions feed upon previous frustrations and distractions. It is during these times that you must move away from thinking about the product and focus on the process. To put it in running terms, it means to forget about how you think you will finish and think about running in the present or what is going on at the present moment. As well-known psychology and motivational writer Louise Hay said, “the point of power is always the present moment. The future cannot be controlled and the past cannot be erased”. Thinking about the outcome of a race

By Richard Ferguson, Ph.D.

during training can sometimes be a positive in terms of motivation. When a runner exhibits self-talk like: “if I train hard that PR is mine” or “by doing these long runs I'll be able to run fast enough to qualify for Boston,” motivation is enhanced by the vision of success. Almost every runner needs this vision to get them through difficult training periods. The key though is to be sure to stick with your training plan. However, once competition begins focusing on the outcome can actually become a negative distraction. When you begin to think about just how important a race is or what can be won or lost at the end of the race, then concentration and physical problems may present themselves and interfere with actual run-

www.running.net ning performance. In other words, you may begin to focus too much on the result and not the process of getting the result. When you begin to think about a race and interpret it as being really important or you begin to focus too much on the result while actually running the race, performance may suffer. Anxiety can result, and you begin to tighten up, both physically and mentally. Many times performance suffers and you perform below your expectations, even though you were well prepared. Many people refer to this phenomenon as choking. In reality, choking is really a concentration problem where an athlete focuses too much on the product and not the process. They get all tied up thinking about the ramifications of the outcome To run your best, it's very important to be able to recognize during a race when you're placing too much importance on the outcome and too much pressure on yourself. So instead of thinking about the outcome of your race, try working to develop thoughts about the process. For example, think about an aspect of your form, like keeping your arms relaxed, maintaining good posture and running form, or keeping a smooth rhythm with your stride. These types of thoughts are called process cues because they have to do with the actual performance of running and not the outcome of the race. Process cues can help you better focus in the present and become a more mindful runner, both in training and competition. When focusing on process cues and not

the outcome you will find process thinking will become a dominant habit and, as a result, the outcome of the race will take care of itself. Through focusing on the process, the running product can actually be improved. With the improved performance comes enhanced confidence and a desire to set challenging goals in your running. A long term goal, such as finishing a marathon or running a new personal best, can be considered an outcome, but short term goals should be what will drive the process of how you will reach your long term goal. So your daily and weekly running goals actually form a process for achieving your long term goal. There is no question that to reach any major goal some process must be involved. In reality the process would be your training plan. On the other hand, focusing only on the outcome without having thought about the process will probably result in disappointment and frustration. Work to become more process oriented and the race results will simply fall into place. When race day rolls around your process will allow you to achieve your desired running product! So always remember that process leads to product.

Olympic Medalist Emma Coburn to Run Birmingham Wine 10K BIRMINGHAM, Alabama The National Center for Sports Safety announced that Rio Olympic bronze medalist Emma Coburn will be running in the Birmingham Wine 10K on March 11. Coburn will be running in the race pacing a group of race participants. She will also attend the post-race party festivities to meet race participants and distribute awards. In Rio, Coburn became the first American woman to win an Olympic medal in the 3,000-

meter steeplechase, earning a bronze medal with a new American record of 9:07.63. Coburn is passionate about helping young athletes and inspiring runners to work hard and do their best. Her continuous work through youth sports camps around the world is a natural fit for the National Center for Sports Safety (NCSS), which promotes safety on and off the playing field for all youth sports. “We are excited to have Emma in Birmingham and to have her at the 2017 Wine 10K,” said

NCSS Executive Director Joseph Longoria. “We contacted Emma just weeks after the Rio Olympics while in Zurich, where she was conducting a running camp for local youth runners. Her interest in our mission and the Wine 10K was immediate.” Coburn said she is "always inspired by kids who love sports and are active. I look forward to visiting Birmingham and supporting youth sports safety through the work and mission of NCSS and running in the Wine10K.” After attending high school at Crested Butte Community School in Colorado, Coburn attended the University of Colorado, where she would become an NCAA champion in the 3000-meter steeplechase. In 2012, following her collegiate career, Coburn qualified for the 2012 Olympic Team and finished ninth at the Olympic games in London. She currently holds the fastest time ever recorded by an American woman in the 3000meter steeplechase with her Rio bronze medal time of 9:07.63. “The running community will be very excited for this opportunity,” Longoria said. “We hope everyone will come out and give a big Magic City welcome to a great Olympian and a great person.” To run with Emma Coburn, go to www.wine10K.com to register.

Oh ! No! Another Grahare !

Inspired Daily It is Possible to Literally Be Inspired Daily? I am very fortunate to have been part of the Brooks Inspire Daily (I.D.) Program since 2010. Each year I eagerly look forward to the renewal process and receiving that acceptance email. The mission of the Brooks I.D. Program is to inspire people to run and be active. Through coaching adults and high school runners, my own running and racing, writing, and working as a Fit Expert at Fleet Feet Sports, I have taken that mission to heart. Each day I try to inspire others and help them achieve their goals. But what I have found is that I am the one who is inspired by all the lives that touch mine through running. When I am having a rough day, I simply look at the people in my life for that uplifting inspiration. The high school runners I coach in both cross country and track are a constant source of inspiration as I watch them set goals, work towards them, celebrate the success of achieving those goals, and also learn from the failures. I see their joy when they break through barriers they never thought they could such as running 8 or 10 miles for the first time in their lives or completing their first half marathon. I currently have two girls and one boy training for their first half marathons dur-

ing their break between cross country and track seasons. This goal race is helping keep them on track with their training during what is normally a very unstructred time for them. Their motivation and excitement levels are high as they log their miles and learn how to drink on the run and practice mid-race nutrition. The two girls who are training for the Sarasota Music Half Marathon, Raquel and Alison, are the two fastest girls on our team. This is the first time since I began coaching at Manatee High back in 2003 that I have had two girls who are now faster than I am. They are both knocking on our 5K school record and have run under 20:00 more times than any other girl in the history of our school. They both just missed going to State (we are in a very tough Region) so my

husband and I took them to the USATF Junior Olympics XC Regional Meet in Tallahassee where they both qualified for Nationals. They opted to skip Nationals, take their post cross country season break, and focus on getting their miles in for the half marathon, which is also their base training for the upcoming track and field season. They received the Bill O'Brien Outstanding Manatee County Runner CoAward, earned their varsity letters - third year for Raque,l who is a junior, and fourth year for Alison, who is a senior and team captain, plus MVP (Raquel) and Coach's Award (Alison). Then Raquel was selected by the Bradenton Herald as the Top All Area Cross Country Athlete. Inspiration overflows this season! I share their success with the other members of the team and hope to inspire the younger runners who are just starting out by letting them know that both Alison and Raquel started out exactly where they are. In high school is when the love of running develops and I hope to show them all sides - competitive to recreational - so that they continue to run long into their adult lives. And then I run into some of my former runners and I hear how they have continued to run. Some have enjoyed half marathons, some have completed their first marathons, one ran New York Marathon without telling anyone until after she completed it, another has qualified for and will run her first Boston Marathon in 2017 (I am excited to be there for that!), one in particular is winning local races left and right, others work in run specialty, and a few are now coaching high school cross country and track (just can't stop smiling about this one!). It is so rewarding, so inspiring to see these amazing young women, who are now adults, passing the torch, sharing their love of running with family, friends, co-workers, and the high school runners they now coach.

Distance Memories 62* … The Streak Will End This Year I can see by the look on your face you’re confused by the title of this story. Baseball aficionados may be thinking it’s a reference to me hitting 62 home runs in a 154-game season of major league baseball; you know, similar to how Roger Maris’ home run total in 1961 is frequently notated (61*). If that’s the case you would be sadly mistaken. Following is a summary of my entire baseball career. See for yourself: I played organized baseball for one season. It was the summer of 1966, the longest summer of my life. I was 11 years old and played right field for the Douglasville (Rhode Island) Wolves. Each game consisted of me standing in right field for four or five minutes, then sitting on the bench for four or five minutes for seven innings and two or three times a game grabbing a bat and standing at home plate trying not to get hit by a 55mile per hour pitch thrown by another 11year old with absolutely no business whatsoever throwing a baseball in my general vicinity. As you might infer, I never hit 62 home runs in a season. But I have run 62 miles. Many times, actually. And NOT ONCE did I have to dodge a baseball coming at me at 55 miles per hour. A beer bottle thrown at my head by a driver obviously under the influence maybe, but never have I had to dodge a fastball while out for a run. Enough about my baseball career; let me get back to the title and explain what it means. For all 38 calendar years (1979 – 2016) I have completed during my consecutivedays running streak I have averaged at least as many miles per week as the age I reached during that year. But that streak will end in 2017. I’m certain of it. 2016 was difficult, to say the least. A heart attack on July 20 put a serious dent in my mileage. Somehow I managed to put in enough time on the asphalt the last four months of the year to finish with an average of 62 miles a week for 2016. I turned 62 on December 10. By December 31 I was so tired that I didn’t do what I normally do on the first day of a new year: Run lots of miles (I stopped at 8). So to suggest that I can average 63 miles a week—9 miles a day— in 2017 seems a bit far-fetched. I verified my running logs to doublecheck my statement of having averaged at least as many miles per week as my age in any given calendar year. I even asked

By Scott Ludwig

Ernst and Young to count behind me (they refused; they didn’t actually ‘refuse’ but rather quoted a price to do it that was way out of my ballpark—HEY LOOK A BASEBALL REFERENCE!). But after double-checking here’s a few interesting things I ran (HEY LOOK A RUNNING/NUMBER PUN!) across: 1980 – My lowest weekly mileage ever (34), the result of a knee injury that was so painful I submitted to a cortisone shot that was even more painful than the knee injury itself. I ran one hour after the injection after the doctor instructed me to not run for a couple of days. It was one of the worst decisions of my running career (getting the injection, not running after I was told not to). 1985 – The only other time I averaged 63 miles a week in a year. I turned 31 that year. To put that into perspective that was over 50% of my life ago. 1986 – I averaged 73 miles a week for the year. I ran my marathon PR in January of 1987. When I’m asked how many miles someone training for a marathon should run, I always tell them 73. Now you know why. (Footnote: I was 32 years old when I ran my marathon PR, which according to legend is the ‘prime age’ of a marathoner. Maybe legend has it right.) 1994 – I averaged 89 miles a week for the year. It was the year I started running with Valerie Howard and Al Barker. This kind of mileage would continue for almost two decades. They are both to blame (Don’t let them tell you anything different). 1998 – I averaged 104 miles a week for the year, my most ever. I ended the year with a win at the Tallahassee Ultra Distance Classic 50K in one of the best races I’ve ever run. I’m convinced even now I could have continued the pace I ran that day (7:14 per mile) for another 19 miles and won the 50-mile version of the race that day. I turned 44 that year so my weekly mileage ‘exceeded’ my age by 60, my all-time high.

www.running.net 2006 – I averaged 92 miles a week for the year. But that’s not why I mention it; rather because for the last 13 years (1994 through 2006) I averaged 91 miles a week—or 13 miles (a half marathon) per day. 2015 – I turned 61 that year. It will turn out to be the last year I averaged 70 miles a week, or 10 miles a day. Interestingly enough, I calculated my daily average for the duration of my running career and translated it into a weekly average of 73. However, I doubt my marathon PR is in any sort of jeopardy.

Down the Road Time To Plan Your New Running Year Now that you are a month into the New Year, have you made your running plan for 2017? If not it's time to think about what, where and why you are going to do the running and racing you will do this year. Running becomes such a part of a runner's life that it is easy to get into a routine, and if it works okay, we stop thinking about what we are doing and just keep on keeping on. But sometimes, in fact maybe most times, it may pay to think about what we are doing and plan ahead. Okay, you can insert your own joke about Einstein's quote about doing the same thing and expecting a different result, but there is truth to it. We can get stale if we never change. Let's talk about runners who never run a race. That's okay, but it was Dr. George Sheehan who said that racing is the lovemaking i.e. the most exciting part of running. So if you have never run a race, maybe you should try one. If you decide not to you might still consider adding some racing style to your running. What does that mean? Here are some suggestions: (1) Try adding a different course. If you always run the same route, try a different one. With GPS watches or apps it is easy to run the distance you want to go without hav-

ing to premeasure the course. If you always head up Main Street as I used to do to start a run, why not change it and run down Main Street? (Of course it pays to know that the direction you might go is a safe area to run. Then you have an alternate when you just don't feel like running the same route. (2) Find a cross country route you can get to and run on. Running on dirt path and trails is quite different from always running on roads. (3) Run with a group. Of course it helps if they like to run the same pace, but even if they don't sometimes it is a good change of pace (no pun intended). What about runners who run races? Check the races you've run the past couple of years. Do you always run the same races every year?

SAN JUAN, PR

runlikeadiva.com Kathy and I ran a lot of the same races every year back when we were running 30 races per year. We had a few we tried never to miss - the Cooper River Bridge Run 10K in Charleston (I ran it 35 years in a row until a car accident ended my running), the Rice Run 5K in Walterboro, Peachtree 10K in Atlanta, and the Flowertown 10K or 5K now called the Shamrock Shuffle in Summerville. So you can see another thing to do. If you really like a race stick with it. But make sure you have a mix of large and small races. If you've never run a mega-race like the Cooper River Bridge Run or Peachtree you have missed a really special experience. But like any mega-race you have to plan ahead, register ahead and get accommodations. But the experience is worth it. I could tell you tales about things that happened when I ran the New York City Marathon or the Marine Corps marathon. If you run a mega-race, even just once, you will never forget it, and probably never regret it. Another thing to do is to tie a race in with a special event. When the River Run 15K in Jacksonville happened to fall on the same weekend the King Tut exhibition was in that town, we got tickets ahead of time, saw King Tut one day and ran the race the next. So look at races in towns where you have wanted to run, but could never justify the trouble - and may you can tie it in with something special in that town and make it a doubly special event weekend. So pick your large race - I can tell you the two largest races in South Carolina in 2016 were the Cooper River Bridge Run 10K with 26,843 finishers and the Turkey Day 5K, also

NOVEMBER 5, 2017

in Charleston with 6,814 finishers. I recommend both of them. There were two dozen races just in South Carolina with over 1,000 finishers in 2016. You might have had as many in your state to choose from. Try a big race, and maybe add a new small race to your repertoire. Since I keep up with all the races in SC (551 is the total for 2016 as of the deadline for this article). There were a dozen races in SC with 10 or fewer finishers. The smallest 5K was the HLN Reggae 5K in Charleston with three finishers, and the smallest 10K was the Run Walk N Roll 10K in Swansea with five finishers. I can tell you from personal experience; it feels very different to be running against a small field. It will spread out and there is a chance you might not see another runner after the first mile. While in a large mega race you will have a crowd around you the entire distance. Both experiences are worth having. So if you always do the same thing, isn't it time? Right. The time is now to try something different. Shake up your route, shake up your speed - throw some really fast running into your usually slow pace, or if you always run fast, mix some slower paced but longer runs into your training. It's time to plan your year. Hope these ideas will help keep you running down the road for many years to come. Cedric Jaggers was elected to the South Carolina Road Runners Hall of Fame in 1992.

THIS RUNNING LIFE CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3 On the other end of the spectrum at the same New York City Marathon, it took 11 hours and 29 minutes, but 96year-old runner Jonathan Mendes wouldn't stop until he crossed the finish line, at 8:14 p.m. in becoming the oldest person to finish that storied marathon more than 8 hours after winner Ghebreslassie broke the winner's ribbon. The New York City Marathon itself broke a record in 2016, with 51,388 finishers, the most ever, proving that even the largest marathon in the world can keep on growing. Over in Ironman land, Lionel Sanders, 28, of Ontario Canada set a new World Ironman record with a fast marathon split of 2:42:31. His complete winning time at Ironman Arizona November 20 was 7:44.29. The previous record, set in 2011 by Marino Vanhoenacker of Austria was 7:45:58. December: Chaz Davis made his marathon debut at the California International Marathon on December 9, finishing with a time of 2:31:48. He's been blind since he was a high school freshman His grand finish set a new American marathon record for visually impaired runners. Mere mortals break records, too. Records like this may leave you both inspired and defeated. How can mere mortals hope to achieve such riches of achievement? The website www.recordsetter.com may hold the key to your own personal glory. Established by Dan Rollman in 2004, this website invites regular people to invent their own world records. Originally called “Player Book of Records,” it was re-branded as “RecordSetter” in 2011. Over the years, records have been set for feats like “the most blueberries that fit inside a belly button” and “the fastest rendition of 'The Devil Went down to Georgia' on an accordion.” Along the way, talented and imaginative individuals have set athletic records, too. On July 10, 2016, young Noa Ohlund, 6, of Norrbotten, Sweden, ran 11 laps around a tree in 30 seconds, setting a junior record for such a feat. Denny Richardson of Sierra Vista, Ariz. holds the record for running 50 yards in 11.16 seconds while carrying his toddler-aged sister upside down on his back, set October 8, 2013. On December 26, 2012, a snowy day in Vestal, N.Y., Dan Myers set a record when he ran a 40-yard dash in 8 seconds while carrying a 57-pound nutcracker holiday decoration. The nutcracker was as tall as Myers.

On September 11, 2012, Clint Poore of Albany, Ky. earned the world record for running the longest distance while carrying a Saint Bernard when he carried his dog, Ezekiel, 150 feet. The next day, he set a speed record for running 50 feet while carrying Ezekiel in 5.62 seconds. He ran with the dog in his arms. In 2014, he earned the title of “Strongest Man in Kentucky” by the American Strong Man League. Two men hold records for running on land while wearing diving flippers. Sean Sonic ran 100 yards backwards in San Diego on July 22, 2011 and Brian Pankey ran 100 yards frontwards on grass in 25 seconds while wearing large flippers. Danny “Fritz” Aquino of San Diego, Calif., set the record for running 800 meters in 2:19.27 while wearing a banana costume on May 8, 2012. On March 6, 2012, Pete Moyer of Hillsboro, Ill. broke a record when he ran 100 meters, barefoot while hula hooping, in 24.40 seconds. On November 20, 2013, Kerry Speckman set a record when she ran a 15k race in 2:37.51 while twirling a baton during the Gate River Run in Jacksonville, Fla. Lisa Wright channeled Alice in Wonderland and set a record for running the fastest marathon while dressed as the Queen of Hearts playing card. She finished the London Marathon in 4:59.41 on Sept. 12, 2012. Jake Hirschowitz of New York City holds a record for running marathons while juggling three balls. At 71, he's the oldest runner to perform such a feat. On May 13, 2015, he notably finished Oregon's Newport Marathon in 4:34:03, coming in second in his age group and setting a record for completing the fastest marathon while juggling. Matt Rishel, of Beloit, Wis. set a record on September 27, 2011 for the longest time running in circles with his forehead on a baseball bat. With the business end of an upright bat sitting on the floor, Rishel bent over in a 90-degree angle, placed his head on the end of the handle and used both hands to hold the bat up. He held that position while running circles around the bat for almost 30 minutes. On April 19, 2012 in Amarillo, Texas, KissFM's Tommy The Hacker set a record for running while wearing high heels and a dress when he completed a 100 yard dash in 22 seconds. Sgt. First Class Augusto “Tito” Pineiro became the fastest man to run 100 miles while wearing a gas mask when he covered that distance in 37.5 hours during the Knock on Wood -100 race in Greenville, SC on May 20, 2016.

After the Run Setting Records Running 100 Miles A racing pulse, panting breath, and sweat-beaded skin likely accompanied your last 5k, 10k, or half marathon race finish. Optimistically, a sense of pride also washed over you as you sprinted toward the finish line tape. Yet, what if your traveled distance had exceeded three, six, 13, or even 26 miles? What if you had run morning to noon, noon to night, and overnight into the next day before approaching your finish line? How would you feel if you ran miles and miles of grassy trail and dirt road to claim a 100-mile ultramarathon victory? “I felt relieved that it was finally over. It felt like it took me forever. That's why I tried to run the last lap a little faster. I was also really hungry and couldn't wait to take a shower,” 40-year old Phil Brown, winner of the 2016 Saint Sebastian 100 said. Brown had run four 8-hour ultramarathons, a 100k, a 50-miler, a 46-miler, and 68 miles of the 100-mile Pinhoti 100, all in 2016, before deciding to try the inaugural Saint Sebastian 100-mile ultramarathon in Florida. “I missed the 68-mile cutoff by a minute or two,” Brown said about the Heflin, Alabama Pinhoti 100, which takes runners over rocks, through creeks, and over the highest point in Alabama while running more than 80 miles of single track across the ridge lines of the Talladega National Forest. Not being permitted to finish that 100mile trek the first week of November may have incited his interest in testing the terrain of the Saint Sebastian 100-miler just three weeks later, but Brown insists that he was influenced more by the reasonable entry fee, close proximity to home, and timely occurrence on a long four-day weekend. The race along the Saint Sebastian Preserve Trail began the morning after Thanksgiving. Brown said that his training was very limited in the weeks immediately leading to the event. “I was recovering from the first week in November. I did get a couple back-toback long (10 to 15-mile) runs on the weekends,” he said. On race morning however, he felt prepared. Brown tackled the first 10-mile lap with a bit of fuel in his feet. “It was still cool out, so I wanted to get in some miles and run fast while I could,” he said. He ran his first lap in 1:30:52, earning him the event's 'Fastest Lap' award - an

However, as daylight waned, Brown's laps began to slow and his fatigue continued to grow. His strides morphed to “sleep running” as he recalled seeing dog tails wagging in the sandy trail and imaginary boxes of Chinese food, road-blocking his path. “That's when I knew I needed a nap,” Brown said. “I took two 10-minute naps. They were life savers.” He stretched out on an aid station cot for one nap, and took the second in his car, which was positioned near the course's first aid station. “That was the only time I looked at my watch during the run. I set my alarm to make sure I was up and running again in 10 minutes,” he remembered. Brown did not set a time goal, or any other goals for the journey, except to finish. Even as unassuming as that intention may have been, it was not realized without working through unexpectedly encountered challenges during his miles. Oranges, chicken broth, baby food, and an Oreo cookie helped combat his hunger, and the power naps helped with his fatigue, but Brown never expected to veer from the loop course that (at the beginning of the race) was well marked. “I got lost. Some hikers moved the trail marking flags and I ran an extra mile,” Brown said. Once the Race Directors were notified, that issue was quickly resolved. Brown appreciated that the Race Directors were both experienced runners. He was also grateful for the helpful volunteers who exuded a genuine interest in the race and the participating athletes. Several of the athletes, including Brown, voluntarily participated in ultramarathon medical research during the event that was sponsored by Indian River State College.

Running Through the Bluegrass Terrific Year in 2016, Listened to the Coach I surprised myself a few times during 2016 — both in terms of race times but even more so in the amount of work I was willing to put in. I ran 16 miles on the treadmill, I never missed a speed session — I never missed a run, period. Other than an off day when I strained my calf in the spring, the only days I took off were planned recovery days. With just a couple of exceptions, I didn’t shuffle runs around or otherwise procrastinate. In terms of racing, I set new personal bests NINE times in seven different distances including the half-marathon twice and full marathon twice. And I not only broke 3 hours, I was 3 seconds shy of breaking it by 3 minutes. Honestly, coming into this year, I thought it might take another year before

By Tracy Green

I got under 3. Instead, I took 13 minutes of my time from Indy 2015 to Indy 2016. Those big jumps don’t come often, so as fun as it would be to lob another 13 off next year, I know that’s not going to happen. I ran a total of 2,808 miles in 2016,

4892 - Coach Matt Ebersole and I after the Carmel Marathon in April (where his athletes placed 1st and 3rd in the men's marathon and 1st and 4th in the women's marathon).

averaging 7.26 miles per run. I ran 13 races and won three of them — but I also ran more competitive races this year, so I am also very pleased with 4th and 9th overall female at my marathons and 5th female at both half marathons So, what did I do differently that made it such a great year of racing? I hired a coach. I’ll give myself plenty of credit for doing the work — but I can’t understate the impact working with Matt Ebersole, of Personal Best Training, had. First, I actually did speed work. Twice a week, pretty much every week this year (except post-marathon, I get a couple weeks off!). We built my mileage up to levels I haven’t seen since 2009, and did it in smarter and more effective ways than I did back then. I did a gajillion long runs — 7 runs of 2022 leading up to Indy — but typically with a down weekend in-between. That alone made marathon training so much more bearable. But the nuts and bolts of the training plan are replicable, and in the grand scheme of things, it’s the same principles you’ll see in most plans. Instead, Matt helped me rethink my approach to training, to racing, to running in general. Training isn’t something you do in freestanding chunks. Each training cycle builds on the next — and just as important is what you’re doing between those cycles. I don’t even see those cycles as the 12 or 16 week blocks like I used to — it’s just a continual process. I don’t “start” training, I’m just always training. And before you think that sounds like a surefire way to burn out, it’s not like that, either. I think it’s actually better. There’s a different type of pressure when you’ve been bumming around a bit and then you go, “Okay, on Monday I start training and I’ll do all these runs listed for the next 12 weeks.” Coach updates my plan every three weeks, and that’s more how I view it. Just a three week block to tackle at a time, not 12 or 16 — like how you eat an elephant. I’ve also reached a point where I run pretty much every day. I don’t think of it as a streak, and I have no qualms about taking off days when needed. But if you keep your recovery days as true recovery, you don’t need as many days off. Coach told me, “If you run every day, you never question if you’re running.” He’s right. I wake up, and I know I’m running that day. Things that worked:

• Making friends with the treadmill. It eliminates excuses and can be a helpful training tool. • Hammer Nutrition products and advice from expert staff. • Regular massage every 3 weeks and dry needling when needed. • More stretching and strength training, and not being able to skip on it because I’m the instructor! • Meal prepping and eating more vegetables by eating vegetarian until dinner during the week. Things that didn’t: • My Garmin at Indy, and optical HR in general. • Working a high-stress, weird hours job not really close to home, gym or running friends (so I changed jobs in April). 2016 Goals: • Do what my coach tells me — every bit of it, even the hard stuff. Check: Typically he tells me to back off before I would tell myself. • Set a new PR in the marathon/break 3:10 (basically the same goal). Check: Under 3:10 both times, new PRs both times … and man, that 2:57 still feels awfully good. • Run at least 2,260 miles (10% increase over 2015) Check: 2,808 final tally. 124% of goal • Earn my Pilates instructor certification Check: I’ve been teaching since midFebruary! As many as 5 classes a week but holding steady at 2 for now. 2017 Goals: • Do what Coach says — every bit of it, especially the hard stuff. This stays a goal because it worked pretty darn well this year. • Race not just for time but for place. Race for position and fast times will follow (via coach). • Run 3,000 miles (7% increase). • Find practical strategies to improve form and make them happen. Wishing each of you a wonderful 2017. Looking forward to another year of sharing my stories with you! Tracy Green is a runner and writer living in Louisville, KY, where she lives wih her husband, Chris.

The Athlete’s Kitchen Nutrition News from the Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics

11

EAT WELL, RUN WELL

Don’t let nutrition

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND) is the nation’s largest group of registered dietitian nutritionists (RDNs). This year, over 12,000 RDNs convened in Boston (Oct 15-18, 2017) to learn the latest food & nutrition news. Here’s a taste of some of topics that were discussed and might be of interest to hungry runners. Weight management • If you want to lose weight, should you count calories? While learning about calories can be helpful, an alternative and equally effective weight loss method can be to choose primarily wholesome foods. Research subjects who curbed their intake of processed food, refined grains, and foods with added sugar simultaneously reduced their intake of calories. They lost the same amount of weight as the calorie-counting dieters. • A survey of ~1,600 college students suggests those with higher stress reported having fewer healthy behaviors than their less-stressed peers. The five healthy lifestyle behaviors they measured included: eating a healthy diet, not smoking or binge drinking, having a healthy BMI, and being physically active. In general, the females had more healthy behaviors than the males unless they were stressed. Thank goodness running is an excellent way to relieve stress! Sports diets • Many parents offer their budding athletes nutrient-poor recovery snacks after, let’s say, a youth fun run or a T-ball game. Is it counterproductive to encourage kids to exercise for fun and fitness, and then enable them to eat for bad health? Offering sports snacks that are both yummy and healthy gives a consistent message. Apple and peanut butter? Yogurt and granola? Grapes and cheese? • Some soldiers, like some runners, are more fit than others. Results from an Army Physical Fitness Test indicated that soldiers with the highest fitness test scores made healthier food choices than those who got lower scores. The fittest soldiers consumed more fiber and whole grains, and fewer fatty foods and refined grains. The top performers reported their food choices helped them feel energized all day (50% vs. 32% of the soldiers with lower fitness scores), be sharp mentally (45 vs. 35%), have improved response to stress (40% vs. 29%) and sustain fewer injuries (37% vs. 21%). They reported that good nutrition played a role in their ability to perform well. Tip: If you want to improve your diet and your running performance, consider consulting with a sports nutritionist who is an RDN. The referral network at www.SCANdpg.org can help you find a local nutrition expert. Eating disorders and athletes • What predisposes some women to developing an eating disorder? In a survey of women with eating disorders (12 athletes, 17 non-athletes), predisposing factors shared by 75% of the women included: low self worth, poor body image, and issues with peers. Additional predisposing factors included depression and anxiety. Among the athletes, getting injured triggered disordered eating behaviors. Tip: If you are an injured runner who has big fears about “getting fat” because you are doing less exercise, you’ll benefit from seeking guidance from a sports nutritionist (www.SCANdpg.org). • Perfectionism is a trait that contributes to high levels of achievement, but it can also lead to the pursuit of a perfect but biologically unrealistic body type. Among dancers, many of whom are perfectionists, eating disorders are prevalent. (Same goes for runners!) A survey of 245 dancers from one collegiate dance program and four professional dance

companies suggests both collegiate and professional dancers scored similarly on tests that diagnose eating disorders. Dancers with eating disorders reported more anger, depression and physical discomfort. If only they had gotten help in college (or earlier), they might have been able to enjoy a better quality of life as a professional. Tip: This same advice applies to all athletes - runners included - who struggle with food, weight and body image. The sooner you get help, the quicker you’ll be able to recover. And yes, you can eat well and still remain lean. Food marketing • Food packaging has a big impact on food purchases. A survey of 6-year old kids indicates packaging influenced their food choices 9 of 12 times. Fifty-eight percent of parents reported they purchased what their child wanted. Yikes, healthy foods need better packaging! * Color-coded food cues are often used to guide healthy food selection. Researchers taught college students about foods that are Go (green), Slow (yellow) or Whoa (red). They placed signs on snack vending machines and created a food marketing campaign via Intranet, email, and posters. Two months after the campaign ended, food purchasing records indicated the students chose better quality snacks. Marketing healthy foods has benefits. We just need more healthy eating campaigns… • As part of a marketing research study, Dunkin Donuts employees asked the customers who ordered a latte, “Would you like to make that a lite latte?” With this nutrition nudge, sales for lite lattes increased from 19% to 52% during the 10–day experiment. In the 20 days afterwards (with no prompting), sales of lite lattes dropped by only 1%. If this choice were to be maintained on a daily basis, the consumer could save 60 calories per drink, for a total of 4,550 calories per year. This would potentially eliminate the yearly pound or two of weight gain experiences by most Americans. Small changes can make a big difference! • Does adding calorie information to a menu alter food choices? Yes, if you pay attention to the information. Students who were instructed to make meals from food photos created lower calorie meals when the photos included calorie information. There’s hope that calorie info in restaurant chains will help curb weight gain. • If you have ever wished that ice cream could comes in healthy-enhancing flavors, stay tuned. Raspberry-beet ice cream might be on the horizon!

Learning from the Young Guns Warming Up for Faster Performances One of the things I've always enjoyed about running, and admittedly it's not unique to running, is that there are no short cuts to success. There is no magic pill you can take, there's no gold pass to the front of the line; it's not something you can practice for a few days and expect to succeed. Success is largely dependent on putting in the miles week in and week out. However, if you have never done a proper warm-up, performing one before your next race may be the closest thing to a magic pill for your performance. You may have always thought warming up is for the people winning the race, but it is essential to maximizing your performance on race day. Take a normal run for example: the reason you tend to feel better once you get a couple of miles into your run is because when you start your muscles are stiff, their range of motion is limited, and your body isn't acclimated to a higher heart rate and effort level. If you tend to feel better at mile 3 than mile 1 of your daily runs there is no reason to think race day should be any different. Gradually warming the muscles up and introducing a higher level of effort through the warm-up process will prevent that heartin-your-throat feeling in the first mile of

By Ryan Warrenburg, ZAP Fitness

your races. A warm-up allows you to be more comfortable early in the race and that translates to feeling better later in the race and having more in your legs for the finish. A proper warm-up varies slightly depending on whether you're running a 5K or a half marathon, but the structure remains the same. (Disclaimer: you do not need to warm-up before the marathon, 26.2 miles is plenty of running.) Arrive to the race early so you can start your warm-up 40-45 minutes before the start. The warm-up run for a 5K or 10K should be 20-25 minutes, and for a half marathon it should be 10-20 minutes. The warm-up should start out very slowly; the goal is to gradually warm and loosen the

muscles by getting the blood moving and the body used to the increase in effort. Those first few minutes should be a crawl and then as you move into the middle of the warm-up gradually increase the pace to your normal every day training pace. Over the final 4-5 minutes of the warm-up increase the pace a little faster, not hard running, but finishing 20-30 seconds a mile faster than your every day easy pace. This last part sounds like it may tire you out for the race, but if you've ever done interval workouts you're probably used to feeling better on the second or third interval than on the first. This is because most people aren't properly warmed up for the first one, and it's important that you're ready for the first one on race day because it is essentially one long interval. If you aren't warmed up well for a 5 you may spend the entire race getting warmed up. You should plan to finish your warm-up run about 20 minutes before the start of the race. The next part of the warm-up process is light, active stretching. It's important to avoid extensive static stretching immediately prior to racing. Static stretching takes a little bounce out of your legs and can leave them feeling a bit deadened, but active stretching increases the range of motion in your legs without stealing that pop. An example of active stretching is a leg swing where you stand and swing one leg back and forth in front of you and behind you, starting lightly and increasing the range of the arc as you loosen it up. Increasing the range of motion in your legs prior to racing is important to be able to fully open your stride when running faster. Perform 10 minutes of active stretching and use this time to make a last minute run to the restroom if you need it. The final step in the warm-up process is

pre-race strides. The strides should be 20 to 30 seconds in length, and you should run 48 of them prior to racing. Start the first few seconds of these easily and then progress forward with the final 5-10 seconds are at or a touch quicker than 5K pace. The purpose is to get the legs used to the quicker speed as well as to introduce a little lactic acid to the muscles so the body can better tolerate it during the race. Take enough rest to fully catch your breath between the strides and finish them about 5 minutes before the start so you are fully recovered for the race. Then get to the start line, take a few deep breaths, and enjoy the race! If you're running a big race and need to be in the corral well in advance of the start, you should still do a warm-up even if it means starting a little earlier and standing around a little longer. You can do strides on the way to the corral and active stretching once you're there. Some warm-up is always better than none, even if you have to modify it a bit. In those situations, try to start the first mile a touch slower and use it as an extension of the warm-up. If the weather is hot, trim the warm-up run down to 10-15 minutes in order to keep your core temperature from getting too high. Wearing a wet t-shirt that has been soaked in ice water for your warmup is an excellent way to get your legs warm without overheating your core temperature. There aren't many quick fixes in the sport of distance running, but a proper warm-up is one that can have a tremendously positive impact on your race performance.

THIS RUNNING LIFE CONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 Riley McLincha of Clio, Mich. ran the fastest one-mile distance in 8:44.22 while dribbling three basketballs on August 3, 2012. Andre Ortolf of Augsberg, Germany set the record for the fast 100-meter run while wearing clogs. He completed the distance in 16.27 seconds on January 21, 2016. On Feb 15, 2014, Manila, Philippines hosted the largest charity run/walk with 175,509 participants to raise money for victims of Typhoon Yolanda. I don't know about you, but I'm inspired to break a few records in 2017. Here's one fellow who is already ahead of the curve:

On Jan. 4, Robert Marchand, a Frenchborn cyclist who lived in Canada for parts of his adult life, set a new world cycling record for men aged 105 and older for distance covered in one hour. Marchand, who has set numerous other records since turning 100, covered 22.547K in 60 minutes at Le VĂŠlodrome National de Saint-Quentinen-Yvelines near Paris.

hear race legends speak about “then and now”. The third year of the Jeff Galloway Race Weekend saw sunny weather with cooler temperatures, which provided ideal race conditions. New and added partners/sponsors delighted runners and walkers at the finish line with “refuel options” ranging from muffins by Sweet Tomatoes in Atlanta, Cheese from CABOT, Coffee by Blue Donkey Coffee, warm oatmeal by Savannah Oatmeal Company; Refuel drinks came from Muscle Milk, Suja Juice and Accelerate, in addition to water provided by Crystal. The organizers and all sponsoring partners went out of their way to make participants and spectators alike feel welcome by providing a fun and positive athletic environment. https://jeffgalloway131.com/sponsors Hundreds of volunteers supported the runners each day of the event to make locals and out of towners, who came from east and west coast locations and nearly all 50 states, welcome in the festive holiday atmosphere of the race events. The Jeff Galloway Race Weekend presented the opportunity for a large variety of runners, from young children to mature adults, to participate and be part of running legends and 1972 Olympian Jeff Galloway's signature hometown event in Atlanta. The beautiful course highlights some of Atlanta's most historical landmarks. Runners start in Midtown Atlanta, traveling parallel to the M.L.K. historical site, and wind through the Freedom Parkway Trail by the Carter Center. The 13.1-mile route is one of the only in town races that incorporates the Beltline's Eastside Trail into the course. The focus of the race is the finish at Piedmont Park.
